Big Data and Datafication: Taking Seriously Perspectives from the Global South

July 9, 2019, 4:00-5:30 PM
International Association for Media and Communication Research
Madrid, Spain

This session brings together the founders of the Big Data Sur – launched at IAMCR 2017 (Cartagena) – with other academics to discuss ways forward towards a more balanced global debate on the dangers and potential opportunities of the push to datafication. In the global debates, the perspectives of the Global South generally remain unvoiced and unaddressed. Scholars need to reflect on how they can contribute to a richer, more representative debate.
